Penang International Airport - The Unofficial Airports Guide

Penang International Airport Arrivals

Most planes will park at the terminal building and use skybridges to the concourse. Arriving and departing passengers are all mixed together in the main concourse. If you're arriving on an international flight, be sure to follow the signs to immigration, which is downstairs on the lower level of the airport. Citizens of North American and most European countries are granted visa-free access for stays of 14 to 30 days. Check out the Malaysian visas page for more information and links.

Baggage claim is a short walk behind immigration.

Once you've retrieved your bags, you can pass through customs and into the arrivals hall. Customs is typically not a problem.
